Pele IV

Hearn lives in South Africa and has created a series of works inspired by volcanoes, which includes Ol Doinyo Lengai, a tribute to Tanzania’s volcano Masai goddess Eng'ai. The artist writes, “Volcanoes are a place of regeneration, symbolized by the lichens which help break down the cooled and hardened lava, so that ferns can grow.” Pele is the goddess of volcanoes in the Hawaiian Islands. Note the artist’s use of dense embroidery to create a richly textured surface.
